The airbrush artists at Tanique Airbrush Tanning trick skin cells into thinking they've been in the sun with the help of a bronzing solution; creating an effect that can last from 7 to 10 days, if properly maintained. This solution can be applied at the salon or during mobile sessions, such as spray-tanning parties that, unlike typical UV-based bronzing events, don't end with a tanning bed covered in melted ice-cream cake.

Mirror Mirror Salon’s stylists tend to the hair and skin with slew of advanced serums, including products from Davines Haircare and Dermalogica. Though the hair techs reserve specialty services—such as keratin and texturizing treatments—for female clients, they still welcome men, women, and children alike to drop in for a cut. The salon complements hair services with facials and waxing services that prevent hyper-progressive hairstyles such as the forearm fauxhawk. They also tackle the phalanx of beauty procedures that often accompany weddings, including special nuptial packages.

Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.

The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.
